The Inside Track: Freddie as she goes
News and gossip from the domestic front with Roisin Dwyer.
Roisin Dwyer, 05 May 2006
Lights, camera, action has been the theme of things lately for Cork rockers Fred. Following an appearance on the award-winning Across The Line they flew off to Edinburgh to shoot a video for Topography from the delicious current album Making Music So You Don’t Have To. Word from the Fred camp is that the vid stars a star-struck chicken, though we are assured no fowl play occurred on the set. Whilst there, they played an electric gig on the royal mile to the delight of locals.
Folk-rocker Aidan has just released Live at Bewleys which also features the talents of Johnny Rage (ITO), Jenny Lindfors, Cian Murphy, James Guilmartin, Ben Kritikos, Chris Morrin and Niall James Holohan. Catch him live at the Ruby Sessions on May 30.
